Ruby Slips and Poker ChipsRuby Slips and Poker Chips by Heather Kindt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ruby Slips And Poker Chips is a romantic comedy and a modern-day tale of Dorothy Gale.

Fans of The Wizard Of Oz might well sit up and take note, as this book is filled with plenty of teasers to delight the reader. Dottie Gale is a teacher in Quandary Elementary, Kansas. When a tornado blew through town, she swore it dropped off Maxine Westward, the new Headmistress.

Dottie and Maxine are instant enemies, especially when Maxine installs new, unpopular, rules. Dottie is restless in boring Quandary, so when she’s picked to attend a teacher’s conference in Las Vegas, she jumps at the chance to attend.

ResolutionsResolutions by Carol Warham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Resolutions is a light, easy read romance set in Yorkshire.

Carly Mitchell is returning to the small town of Yeardon, which she left abruptly a year ago; she has now come back to face her demons and make apologies.

As the story unfolds we learn that Carly jilted her fiancé at the alter and no one has heard from her since then. Most people in town are still angry and unwelcoming towards her. However, Ben Thornton, the new young Doctor, offers her friendship, even after hearing the rumours.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Match Me If You Can is a RomCom set in London and features internet dating.

Catherine, ‘London’s Best Date Doctor’, shares her business with ex-husband Richard, although his role is passive. Clients choose packages like ‘Love Match’, or ‘RecycLove’, the latter of which involves bringing in an ex, and both partners providing a romantic evaluation of the other. But Richard is about to sell his half of the business to his fiancé, Magda. Feeling hurt that Richard’s love life has moved on so quickly, Catherine is even more surprised when Magda insists on an active role in the job.

Away from work, Richard and Magda want to be friends with Catherine, both seeking her advice on their wedding plans, which is both painful and awkward for Catherine, who certainly had my admiration; I’m not sure I…
